After years being a chronic renter and mover (in the last 10 years I've lived in 10 different places, not fun especially since I am one who hates moving and change), I am finally a home owner :) It is a strange feeling walking into a house and having it be “yours”. It hasn't really hit yet, probably because I've been spending most of my time cursing while removing wallpaper and cleaning carpets, but I think it will really sink in once we are officially moved in next week.

The house has also been taking up a lot of my time, which I think I've established (see past blogs) is basically non-existent. So really that means that I haven’t been running or writing much lately. I've also taken on some volunteer tasks with the Florida Writers Association, so all in all, I've been spreading myself a little thinner than normal. I can't wait to finally be moved so at least that will be one less thing to have to worry about.

I've also moved up a bit in the world, as I am writing this on my brand spanking new computer. After agonizing for much longer than one should have to agonize over purchasing a new computer (see above, the fact that I hate change), I finally bite the bullet and got a new desktop. My old one was over 8 years old and I'm pretty sure computer years are measured similar to dog years. While it worked perfectly as a word processor, if I happened to ask it to do two things at once, it basically threatened to explode (some days I sympathize). It was becoming increasingly difficult to write any more as I use the internet quite frequently to research and also to simply update the various social media's I am on.

So here I am, acting like almost a full-fledged grown up; buying things I need to further myself and trying to let go of those new-territory reservations I find difficult to shed.

This new computer is also really make me want to write more, which is awesome, though I hope the motivation will stay til next week when I have a bit more time. Which frankly I am kidding myself, as I know that something else will come up that will fight for my time as well. Maybe I need to work on saying no seeing as the whole making-more-hours-in-a-day experiment has so far yielded negative results.

But if there is one thing anyone has ever moved to a new place know to say yes to, is shopping, new computers and all. Almost makes it worth the change ;)

On the Go Moving handles all manner of moving services, but one of the moves that we are best at is residential moving in Seattle and the surrounding cities.

If you really want to write more - you should do that ;)

I think this is interesting to be a mover when you are young and full of power and impressions. Like it!
